cgi in rogue one

  1. Is raddus cgi? I thought so, but some scenes of him looked pretty real.
  2. Is the main droid (entirely) cgi?
  3. Are there other notable uses of cgi characters I’m not thinking of? (minus Tarkin)

  1. No.
  2. Maybe, probably.
  3. The mind probe alien.

For #3, there’s Leia obviously.

  1. No.

Raddus looked pretty CGI to me.

I was going to make a joke about Tarkin minus Tarkin, but that’s basically what we got.

Yes Some are Animatronics and CGI combined (Hybrid)

Bor Gullet was both Practical and CGI (as Neal Scanlon had to make a phyical prop possibly scanned and animated or Hybrid)
Raddus is Animatronic but also has CGI done on him. He is definitely CGI’ed at the end but it seems he was not on Yavin Base
K2S0 is probably a physical prop digitized but animated via mocap

That is my take on it.
